Heart & Vascular Care

Find lifesaving heart care right in your own backyard

After a heart attack, blood flow stops – the sooner doctors restore blood flow the better, because time is muscle and every wasted minute causes permanent heart damage. Freeman Heart & Vascular Institute, located in Joplin, Missouri, offers you rapid, expert care.

Recognized by Anthem Blue Cross and Blue Shield in Missouri as a Blue Distinction Center® for Cardiac Care, Freeman Heart & Vascular Institute provides all cardiac services in one convenient location. Services include preventive care, emergency interventions, diagnostics, open-heart surgeries, structural heart clinic, rehabilitation, cardiology clinics and education.

The facility, a three-story wing adjacent to Freeman Hospital West, has three state-of-the-art operating suites and four cardiovascular catheterization labs.

Research is an integral part of our heart and vascular program. We participate in many national studies of cardiovascular treatment. From time to time, patients may be offered the opportunity to participate in clinical trials.

Transcatheter Aortic Valve Replacement (TAVR)

Freeman is the first and only hospital in our area to provide TAVR, a procedure for patients with severe aortic stenosis (narrowing of the valve in the aorta) who can’t risk open-heart surgery.

TAVR is part of Freeman’s Structural Heart Program, which features:

  • Collaborative team of interventional cardiologists, cardiothoracic surgeons and echocardiologists.
  • Diagnosis and treatment of conditions affecting the valves and other vital structures of the heart.
  • Personalized, coordinated care and comprehensive range of medical and surgical treatment options for patients throughout the region.
